    Horrible Statistics.
    Fossils has 3,62,121 likers not 60k. How come there is such a huge differnce between fact and this chart.
    This makes Fossils 3rd most popular after Euphoria and Indian Ocean.
    This is the 1st time I came to know Bhoomi and Chandrabindoo are rock bands!!!
    What happened to the rock scene of Bengal after 1999? The person who did this research lost his vision or what?

    Chandrabindoo turned 25 this year. Cactus turned 21 last year.

    I’ve been an avid follower of Indian bands since 1996, I wonder what those bubbles represent… do they show the timeline of the band’s existence? if so, thats Bull***t, nice graphics though. Cheers!
